BROOKFIELD OH- Brookfield Opener the season Monday night with an impressive 53-47 win over United.
United started the game with control. Their slow paced inside focused offense was really controlling a tempo. Freshman Grace Knight scores 5 of her 11 points in the 1st Qtr and helped United close the frame with a 11-7 lead.
However, in the 2nd Qtr, Brookfield would find rythym on offense. Sophia Hook knocked down three 3’s as the Warriors stormed to a 24 point frame and led 31-21 at the break.
United would not be swept away though, they’re zone tightened in on Hook’s jumpsuit and kept her relatively quiet in the third quarter. This helped the Eagles slowly but surely creep back in to the game.
The closest the Eagles would get was three points. Every time they got too close for comfort, Brookfield would come up with a huge shot. United had the ball down just four with about 12 seconds to go in the game and got senior Destiny Hill a good look from the corner. It would not fall though, and two more free throws from Hook would ice the game at 53-47.
Hook led all scorers on the night with 23 points. She 5 three pointers on the night. Audrey Reardon has a solid night as well finishing with 14. Katie Logan was also in double figures with 11.
United was led by Madison Kibler who finished with 15. Knight added 11.
Brookfield moves to 1-0 and they’ll host Heartland on Wednesday. United drops to 0-2 and they will host Salem on Monday.
